Support for wildlife in need
One of the main motives behind selling my art, besides spreading awareness, is to enable financial support for conservation efforts. When you make a purchase, you automatically support wildlife in need! I am currently selling my art on the Etherium blockchain “opensea”, where direct donations to the two wildlife organisations below are made. You can be confident your money will help make a positive difference. By utilising blockchain technology, all purchases and donations are fully transparent. No more doubts about where your money is going. Each NFT purchase will link you directly to an exclusive group chat with one of these amazing organisations. The reason I have chosen these organisations is because they personally inspire me. I am so grateful there are people out there doing such an awesome and essential job. Check them out below to view their website and familiarise yourself with their values.
Want to take it further? If you’re interested in supporting more conservation efforts, start by checking out local initiatives. Lending a hand is easier than you may think and can also be really fun. Most non-profits rely on charity alone so every little contribution makes a difference!
